#LINK<View our feature on Jane Austen.>#

Few have failed to be charmed by the witty and independent spirit of Elizabeth Bennet. Her early determination to dislike Mr. Darcy is a prejudice only matched by the folly of his arrogant pride. Their first impressions give way to true feelings in a comedy profoundly concerned with happiness and how it might be achieved.

#LINK<># @FirstThoughtBestThought Usually a man wills his home to his wife or kids. But sometimes, he wills it to a distant relative, so when he dies, you’re out on your ass.

And then, and THEN, that distant, meddlesome priest of a relative tries to seduce one of your sisters.

Unsure why anyone would want my sisters. All they want is to hit it with the officers – what war are they even fighting in the countryside?

Though my older sister–Jane–is nice. How could she not be? Jane is such a good name. I would like anybody named Jane.

Synopsis:

Mr and Mrs Bennet live with their five daughters at Longbourn in Hertfordshire. Jane, the eldest, falls in love with Charles Bingley, a rich bachelor who takes a house nearby with his two sisters and friend Fitzwilliam Darcy. Darcy is attracted to the second daughter, Elizabeth.

Synopsis:

Of all Jane Austen's books, Pride and Prejudice has earned a special place in the hearts of the reading public as her best-loved and most intimately known novel. From its famous opening sentence the story of the Bennet family and of the novel's two protagonists, Elizabeth and Darcy, told with a wit that its author feared might prove 'rather too light and bright, and sparkling', delights its most familiar readers as thoroughly as it does those who encounter it for the first time. Jane Austen's artistry is apparent, too, in the delineation of the minor characters: the ill-matched Mr. and Mrs. Bennet, Charles Bingley and his sisters, and above all the fatuous Mr. Collins, whose proposal to Elizabeth Bennet is one of the finest comic passages in English literature. And while she entertains us, Jane Austen teaches us the wisdom of balance, the folly of 'pride' and 'prejudice'.

Enter the world of Pride and Prejudice, were marriage is the goal of every woman. Marry for money, marry for love, marry so you won’t be an old maid, and marry because of obligation. Just get married.


Follow the main characters as they endeavor to find a man that suites them perfectly. Can you even find a man like that? Oh goodness, the drama that’s bound to ensue, when you have such choices for a husband. The amiable Mr. Bingley, the loved by most, Mr. Wickham, The silly headed clergyman, Mr. Collins; and the proud Mr. Darcy. Will any of them be a perfect match for the Bennet girls? Mrs. Bennet is set on making it so for at least one, if not all of her daughters. Remember, marriage is the goal in the thrilling romantic novel, of Pride and Prejudice!

The satisfaction of both, reading a trashy magazine AND feeling brilliantly literate! I don't like Elizabeth or Darcy very much, but I get smitten with them and Austen's story almost every time.

There are many awful movie versions of this story. The book and the BBC Series are the ways to go.
